Employment Law Classics – 16. Addis v Gramophone Co Ltd

We’re going seriously deep into the archives for this one with the 1909 decision in Addis v Gramophone Company Ltd. In this case the House of Lords looked at the compensation due to an employee who was dismissed without notice or explanation, causing potentially serious damage to his reputation. The decision has been controversial ever since and continues to be debated.

Also referred to are the House of Lords decisions in Malik v BCCI and Johnson v Unisys.

We end with a sing-song!
